I feel that in starting our holiday with fish and chips from potters hill we may have raised our expectations for fish and chips for the whole holiday. In short the fish and chips are beautiful. Fish was delicious, batter crisp, chips not too soft...More

What a lovely thing to say! The Onion Rings are a particular favorite of ours. And yes, Beef dripping is the Traditional Yorkshire way, just like my Nan used to make! The Parmo is a local specialty, a breaded chicken Schnitzel with Sauce and cheese....More

The fish was cooked to order and therefore was pipping hot. There was a handy seat just outside to sit and eat and many customers went in while we were there. We would definitely recommend this fish shop.

Many thanks for such kind words. We do like it when you like it and the sight of people sitting and eating on that bench is always a happy one. Hope to see you again soon. The Potter Hill Gang

We thought we'd had the best fish n chips in Scarborough but we were wrong! Very fresh fish and tasty curry sauce - with an extra kick! Great for a quick supper after a busy day in Yorkshire.

Thank you for your very kind words. The spicy sauce I assume, every in the shop loves that, we all eat it almost everyday. Glad you liked it and hope to see you again soon. Until then, travel safe. The Potter Hill Gang.

We was camping nearby and fancied fish and chips. Found this little place on Google so decided to try. It was amazing hot tasty and the onion rings were out of this world. If we're in the area again we will definetly be back
